The Ring of Death (1980)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2001-12-26
Summary: Pretty damn good
Apart from a few dead spots, this is pretty much a slam bang actioner. The star Cliff Lok shows excellent fu skills and is often hilarious, making fools of other fu fighters, including some terrific ones like Kwan Yung Moon.

I was pleasantly surprised that veteran villain Shih Kien shows some at least passable fu skills, and even his near namesake Dean Shek does some decent fu clowning. However, I was perplexed to see that the great fu mistress Lin Ying appears to have used a stunt double for some of her character's tougher moves.

The story follows pretty much to track established by Jackie Chan in Drunken Master. Great fun and warmly recommended.
